Source: Debby Louvish
Serves: 6

2 medium onions, minced
1/4 cup chicken fat
6 raw, peeled potatoes
2 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon KLP baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Note: To make recipe dairy, omit the schmaltz and use butter.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In small saucepan, cook onions in the fat over medium heat for approximately 5-10 minutes.

Grate the potatoes into a bowl. Add the onions with the fat, and eggs.

Sift dry ingredients together and add to the potato batter, mix thoroughly.

Pour into a well-greased 1-1/2 quart casserole, 2-1/2" deep and bake uncovered for 1-1/2 hours.

Poster's Note:
For Passover, substitute equal amounts of matzo meal and potato starch for flour and baking powder. If Passover baking powder is available, you can use it.
